Frankly, much of the material is esoteric and as difficult to follow as twisting country roads before Google Maps. In collaboration with our editors, we took some time deciding on an approach to this book.

Introduction to Psychology

We realized that most people who are interested in this topic are probably teachers, parents, child-care providers, grandparents, and others who are interested in kids. Rather, like most books in the For Dummies series, this book takes complicated theories and ideas and turns them into practical information that can be applied to the real world of children and those who care about them.

Instead, we took a different tack, weaving science, theory, and our own clinical experience into a sensible look at child psychology and development. We start with the big picture of what makes kids tick and reveal the four major goals of a successful childhood.

We also discuss how development proceeds normally with respect to each of those goals at different ages. We describe how families, schools, and communities can optimally support child development. We describe the most common childhood disorders and disabilities. Fortunately, much can be done about these problems, and we tell you about the treatments and interventions that work.

This book is meant to provide lots of information about child development and the problems kids encounter. What Not to Read Most books are intended to be read from cover to cover.

If you like doing that, by all means feel free to do so. But you can actually approach this book in almost any way that you want. You can use the comprehensive table of contents to choose what you want to read and in what order. Please realize that these examples represent composites of children and their caregivers confronting all sorts of issues. None of these children actually exists as described. Any resemblance to a particular person is entirely coincidental.

We boldface the names of people in our examples to indicate that a case example is starting. But when we resort to using a term that you may find unfamiliar, we usually italicize the word and give you a brief definition.

We try to keep technical terms to a minimum. Just type the address as you see it on the page, ignoring the line break. Chapter 1 provides a broad-brushstrokes overview. Chapter 3 lays out the four major goals of childhood — what kids need to master to become well-functioning adults. Chapter 4 starts with what happens before a kid becomes a kid — at conception — and then describes birth and the rapid developments during the first year of life.

In Chapter 5, we discuss the preschool years, ages 1 through 4. Then, in Chapter 6, we review what happens during the middle-childhood years, ages 5 through 12 — years that revolve around making friends, acquiring skills, and developing better self-control.

During adolescence, described in Chapter 7, kids go through tremendous changes. Their bodies develop, their sense of who they are matures, they learn to think abstractly, and the importance of peers increases. For parents and teens alike, surviving adolescence is quite an accomplishment.

Next, in Chapter 9, we review what schools and teachers can do to help kids achieve their highest potential, as well as show parents some of the various day-care and educational options available to them. Finally, in Chapter 10, we discuss the role that communities can play in helping kids reach adulthood intact.

Kids can be born with problems or develop them over time. This part alerts you to early signs of problems that could lie on the horizon so help can be sought early. In this part, we discuss common physical challenges, problems that may affect school achievement, emotional disorders, the autism spectrum, and behavioral disorders.

We also review the sometimes-horrific effects of child abuse, trauma, and accidental injuries. Our intention is to help those who care about children understand the nature of childhood difficulties.

Conditions of Use

If so, this part reviews the kinds of therapies and interventions that can help. These interventions have been studied and shown to be effective. We also discuss how parents, teachers, and professionals can collaborate for even better outcomes.

We tell those who care for kids how to communicate effectively.Just a few of the possible career options include clinical psychology , forensic psychology , health psychology , and industrial-organizational psychology. Consistently instruct kids by saying things like the following: Key Takeaway: Writing your thoughts down, examining them critically, and rewriting the stories you tell yourself are all important steps toward improving your mental health.

Signs to look out for include changes in sleep and appetite, increased moodiness, spikes in irritability, withdrawal, listlessness, age-inappropriate fearfulness, and bouts of crying. They found that those adults who experienced frequent moves as children were less happy and had more psychological problems than adults who had moved less frequently during childhood.
